The Empire of Xentheia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 386 million Xentheians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.8%.

The powerhouse Xentheian economy, worth 25.0 trillion Xents a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 64,696 Xents, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 234,377 per year while the poor average 12,731, a ratio of 18.4 to 1.

Several inches are being added to first class seating, elections have been outlawed, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, and Xentheian-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways. Crime is moderate. Xentheia's national animal is the Space Worm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Xentheia is ranked 223,157th in the world and 7,039th in Balder for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 19.59 Tourists Per Hour.
